Day 5- quick update

Gabi  was up to 17.7 kilos today! That is up 500 grams!  That is more than a pound she has gained since admission on Monday!

Thursday she ate 730 calories by mouth!!!  Unbelievable!

The dietician has decreased her g-tube feeds by 50%. For the first time ever, Gabi does not have a continuous overnight feed with the pump!  I can actually get some sleep without that thing pumping away. Because, it’s always about me, ya know :) I still can’t even believe this.

And being fed continuously overnight is so unnatural that it takes Gabi a few hours to feel good in the morning. She is always gaggy, burpy and just doesn’t feel well. I can’t wait to see how she is tomorrow morning.

So they want her to get 3 bolus feeds of 150 ml each 3 times a day. One at noon, one at 6 and the last at 10pm. She also needs some additional water boluses, but that is easy.

We just need her to keep this up! You go girl. I am so proud of you. Praise God!

We’re pulling the mommy-daddy switch tomorrow… I get to head home and see my other babies!

Thanks for all the prayers, they are certainly working! Please pray for all the families here…
Much Love

Teri
